International Trade Training: Why You Should Enroll in a CIFFA Program


In a society where education and Canadian certification is important to employers, many students think that it takes too long to get what good employers want.

Fortunately, industry certifications such as the Canadian International Freight Forwarders Association (CIFFA) provide exactly what employers are looking for, do not require years of training, and are recognized all across Canada.


Career-focused Education:

The certification available from CIFFA is obtained in two parts. The beginner’s certificate from CIFFA is achieved through the successful completion of the International Transportation and Trade course and the Essentials of Freight Forwarding course.

The CIFFA courses along with the Schulich Managament Courses allow the student to go on and obtain the Professional Freight Forwarders (PFF) designation, which is recognized throughout many countries in the world. Our students have a very high rate of success in seeking employment through a targeted job search method tailored directly for this industry.

Why do I want to take a CIFFA Program

Many of our partnering employers have continued to hire our students to fill jobs created by their expanding needs.

We offer the following courses:

International Transportation and Trade Course

This program introduces the student to air, ocean, truck and rail transportation and to the world geography over which goods move. Incoterms 2010® outlines the transfer of cost and risk to these goods as they are transported from seller to buyer.

CIFFA and Freight Fowarding

Essentials of Freight Forwarding Course

Understanding how buyers and sellers manage risk with a variety of international payments, cargo insurance, properly completed commercial documents and export packaging leads students to where they can offer alternative solutions to their clients. This program concludes with professional costing and quoting.
